I instaled Mac OS - Snow Leopard 10.6.3 on my laptop - Packard Bell Eastnote NJ65.
Everything is OK, but Wi-Fi and Ethernet:
My original Wi-FI card was Intel 5100 , but I saw there have not kext for it and I changed it with Broadcom BCM 4312. I tryed every kext what i found but after reboot everytime I have problem to boot OS. I have kernel panic or message to restart laptop.
In the install disk I have fix for my card which I installed, but when I start Mac I haven't WiFi. When I try to make new connections in Network - there have not option for wireless, just 6 to 4; PPoe and VPN.
The same problem with my Ethernet connection - I can not start it. It's Broadcom 5784M.
Can somebody help me? May be I do something wrong, but I don't know what.
Thank you very much!

When you installed the kexts for the BCM 4312, did you repair permissions correctly? Find the utility Kext Helper b7 or something to help you install the kexts and get the permissions right.

I tryed before with this Magnat2's script, but I haven't success,now I will try to install the script, but everytime when I install something after that i can't boot Mac Os.
When I instal some kext I using Kext Helper B7, but may be somewhere I doing something wrong.
If I have kext in the install CD why I can not use the wireless conections? - in the Extra/Extensions folder I have Broadcom fix and there I found my card ID and vendor ID.
Is Kext helper enough for repair permisions, I tryed to repair permisions and with Disk utility?

From what I can tell, 10.6.3 is already set up to work with a standard BCM 4312 card. It shouldn't need any fixes or different kexts.

I installed iAtkos s3 v2. And I thing there have everything for this Wi-Fi card and shoul work without any different kext, but I have not option in Network settings for wireless. I don't know why.

With his help we added in <string>14e4,4315</string> in AppleAirPortBrcm4311.kext's info.plist but still have no wireless.
Does anyone have any idea what else can be done?

Turning On/Off a WiFi Network Connection
Most computers feature a ‘WiFi’ button that turns the network connection on or off. If your computer does not feature a ‘WiFi’ button, you may turn your wireless network on or off, or control what is shared over the network with the network management options.
